• Avoid using any pesticides, slug killers and chemicals in the dog garden that can be dangerous to your dog's health.
• Paving in a dog friendly garden will act as a radiator in the summer as it absorbs the heat. Most dogs will love
to lie in it in the summer, but do have areas of shade or grassed areas in a dog garden that your dog can access
and cool down.
• If you do have flowerbeds in dog friendly gardens, consider raising these so your dog will not be able to access
them to dig. You could provide a sand pit area in the dog garden where he or she can freely dig. Choose a slightly
heavier weight sand that will not blow about and which mimics earth density.
